PAIN PATTERN: Pectoralis Major Trigger Points or “Tight Pecs”
THE ANSWER: Scar Tissue on the Forehead
PPS Direct Muscle Correlation
I know what you’re thinking. What does my Forehead have to do with my pecs being tight? LOTS
This is a solution that I find works GREAT with athletics, specifically bodybuilders. But it is not limited to just those trying to build and improve their muscles. This is a common problem for anyone who has a repetitive motion syndrome that uses the Pec muscles. Some other considerations are:
Moms that carry their kids all the time
Factory workers, carpenters, or mechanics
Cosmetologists and Nail Technicians
Someone who runs a mouse for a computer all day and have their arm suspended in front of them for long periods of time
If you have been trying to get your client’s pecs to release and they continually stay tight, locked, and painful the PPS Reverse Trigger Pointing Solution is your next step.
Scar Tissue Formation on the Forehead (Frontal bone)
Scar Tissue on the Forehead has the following characteristics:
This Scar Tissue always relates to the chest and Pectoralis Major and sometimes the Sternum.
This Scar Tissue are affects the Trigger Points in the Pectoralis Major and the correlating antagonistic muscles.
There is additional back pain cycles that come from the Pectoralis Major being placed into a lengthened position; Rhomboid and Trapezius. Overall, there is a rounding that occurs in the upper Thoracic area.
The pain is very intense and specific – in the spine and out across both Scapula. It looks similar to the Rectus Abdominis Trigger Point Patterns but much higher.
How To Work on the Forehead for Pectoralis Major Trigger Point Patterns
This work is very straight forward. You match up the area of the Pectoralis Major with the same area on the forehead. Use the image below that is an exact location of Pectoralis Major pain and where it is located on the Forehead:
The Pectoralis Major matches the Forehead. The Forehead is an exact copy, only smaller than the expanse of the chest
While you do this correlating work, check the tone of the muscle to gauge how the work is progressing. This is a skill we call muscle checking in PPS and it is like asking them muscle where to work, how much to work and if you are finished working in an area of Scar Tissue to create the most change in how the muscle is contracting.
This is a small introduction into how PPS Bodywork – WORKS! There are many areas in the body that have Scar Tissue Correlations such as the Rhomboid to IT Band Correlation.
